It may have "appeared" the way, but the facts are different.

1) Mr. Phillips intent "I didn't feel that I could just stand there anymore and not do something. It looked like these young men were going to attack these guys. They were going to hurt them. They were going to hurt them because they didn't like the color of their skin. They didn't like their religious views." https://www.clickorlando.com/news/politics/native-american-e...
2) Mr.Phillips approached the kids
3) The Black Hebrew Israelite engaged in verbal abuse of the kids for 60 minutes prior to Mr. Phillips arrival. And it "appears" to me that the Southern Poverty Law are monitoring them as a hate group. https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/intelligence-report/...
4) The Native Americans had a permit for the Lincoln Memorial. Covington Catholic was waiting for a bus, but the sponsors in hindsight should not have brought them to the Memorial.
5) Drumming in the face of a kid is not respectful.
6) The day after Mr. Phillips and 20 demonstrators attempting to disrupt a Catholic mass in Washington, DC’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is not respectful.

Wearing a MAGA hat and a smirk is currently only a crime in George Orwell's 1984 Face crime.
